Best-Ever Entrepreneurship Quotes, week 68

Back to business, with our continuing series of leadership quotes designed to get your week off to an inspired start.

This week: Why there will always be room for entrepreneurs, in every market:

“The underdog in many products can pick and choose where it wants to hit the giant. The giant, by contrast, must defend itself everywhere.”

George H. Lesch, former president, chairman and CEO, Colgate-Palmolive (from 1960 to 1971)

Sometimes, as entrepreneurs, we see only the huge challenge in front of us. If we could see it from our competitor's perspective, things might not look so daunting.

This quote reminds me of self-defence training - you can take down any giant when you aim for the weak spot!
